Joe Cohen Baltimore, Maryland
Business Coach, Performance Coach, Career Coach
Juris Doctor (J.D), Certified Life Coach
I'm a performance coach and a strategist.
I have the credentials, degrees, certifications, etc. But what is much more important is that I get results, I'm adaptable and I have a diverse professional background. (see my website for more on this- www.40pillars.com).
Are you an ambitious person who is unsatisfied with where you are?
Do you feel that you're not actualizing your potential?
If so, contact me to see if you're a good fit for my coaching. Trust me, it won't be a sales call. Ethically, I rather refer you to someone else if you're not the right fit. I don't want the headache and our time is too valuable to waste.
Based on the success of my current and past clients, I believe that I can give you a high ROI on your investment assuming that you're the right fit.
I have worked with hundreds of people in different capacities, including professionals, business owners, and executives.
I can help you to discover and overcome the barriers you have built internally, so you can move out of your comfort zone and push past fear.
I can help you take on exciting new goals and projects that you previously thought were out of your reach.
I can help you destroy limiting beliefs and discover the leader within you.
I can show you that it’s possible to change your life.
I’ve been to rock bottom, and I’ve climbed my way back up.
The way I see the world now is drastically different than how I saw it 20 years ago. Where I used to feel like the world was against me, I’m now able to see hardships as lessons making me stronger.

"Once in a while you get lucky and meet someone with that special character trait thats able to completely understand your goals and have real life solutions. When I first met Joe, I knew it was my lucky encounter. He just "gets it". Like a mind-reader, he goes in deep and brings you to a much better place with plenty of "ah ha" moments. Joe's a great Life Coach who can motivate all sized companies to think out of the box to find creative ways to keep work productive and meaningful at the same time. I would love to see Joe do this on a larger scale for various levels of government - sort of like group therapy for the masses on a national level. Joe's abilities are unlimited and what he can offer you and your organization are equally unlimited."Michael K. Brown Esq. website: http://mkblawoffices.com/clients/
Joe's insight and ability to assess a situation, recognize a person's potential - and provide immediate and concrete guidance are invaluable. Joe speaks with a clarity and honesty that speaks to the head, and to the heart. He guided me towards a logical and practical strategy to resolve difficult issues when more "experienced" professionals fell short. In short, I highly recommend Joe.”Jeffrey Turtletaub

Recently, I had the pleasure of working with Joe. He kindly went through my website and gave me his honest opinions and plenty of constructive criticism that will help solidify clients.

As founder and CEO of Binary Solution Test Preparations Inc., I am pleased to recommend to you Joe Cohen. I have worked closely with Joe for about a year and I am very impressed with his work as a consultant to my business. His interpersonal skills and business sense, due to his experience with a wide range of entrepreneurs, have been invaluable in Binary’s development process and made a significant contribution to our success. During that time he has earned my complete trust and respect because of the professional, honest and friendly way he has dealt with people. His unfailing professionalism and courteous manner underline his value as a genuine friend in business. Specifically, Joe has provided creative marketing ideas and strategies. He has tailored his method to Binary Solution’s goals, and helped me bring in new customers. His ability to get along with students and professionals of varying ages and backgrounds has been instrumental in expanding my business. On numerous occasions, he has performed in depth research in order to understand the needs of a varied target demographic, and was then able to connect me to a new client base using his charismatic communication abilities. My other colleagues and business partners that came in contact with Joe enjoyed working with him as well, which I believe is indicative of the impression he leaves upon the people with whom he deals. I can enthusiastically recommend both Joe and his services to your organization.Eva Lana CEO & Founder Binary Solution
Serendipitously, our agency was fortunate enough to be found by Joe … indeed, he was an existing customer of ours, as he has his autos insured with our agency. Our relationship quickly evolved into a strong friendship and now Joe is providing our agency with his professional services. With his expertise -- ranging from marketing direction to advertising/recruiting tips and promotional insights -- he shows us how to maximize our resources. Joe is up-to-date with today's social networking environment and his field. His outstanding customer service makes working with him an absolute delightDavid Kievman Agency Owner Allstate Insurance
Joe has a real understanding of internet marketing. His insights and ideas have really helped me. His ability to merge video and social marketing, while still maintaining the core message, is really phenomenal.Charlie Harary Founder & Partner H3 & Co.
Joe has been a very committed, talented and enthusiastic leader in 180 Degrees Consulting at both a branch level and on the Global Leadership Team. He brings great ideas, a lot of energy, and raw ability to the team. He gets along with everyone and is very easy to work with. He is not concerned with titles/positions, but does the work that needs to get done. He has both a strong business knowledge and a strong social awareness. I am very grateful for the enormous contribution Joe has made to 180 Degrees. It has been a genuine pleasure to work with him, and so I have no hesitations in recommending him.Nat Ware Founder & CEO 180 Degrees Consulting
Joe is super professional, experienced and flexible. He was my first career mentor so far and he did a perfect job with my general interview prep, helping me build up my confidence. Sessions could be in the form of face-to-face or video call, and if you do video/audio calls, Joe will record it for your future reference. I didn't realize how important it is to practice with someone professional until my attending Joe's sessions, which were extremely helpful. I am very happy to say I succeeded in getting an offer and I will definitely recommend Joe to the fellow job seekers! https://www.linkedin.com/in/rtao1/Ran Tao (Software Engineer)
Joe Cohen has been a continuous support with valuable resources for my business over the years. Joe is as intuitive as he is creative and always seems to know which direction to pursue. With a no nonsense solution-focused approach, I have found that we are able to cut to the bottom line quite quickly and achieve the results desired for my company and my employees. Best of all, he provides knowledge and skills that are applicable ad infinitum. I would highly recommend consultation with Joe and 40 Pillars. You will only benefit from the experience and will not be disappointed! https://www.linkedin.com/in/brandon-margolis-a38403a/Brandon Margolis (President at Pro Coverage group)
Joe is a very special person. He is probably the most genuine, self-made, hard-working person I've ever met -- not just hard-working in his career, but in developing himself into the best he can be. By merely speaking with him, he shows you what your potential is. I trust him so much that if I needed any help in my personal or business life, he would be my first call. https://www.linkedin.com/in/benjamin-jessurun-0b995b148/Benjamin (Ben Jones) Jessurun (Agency owner Allstate)
When looking for a coach, I was skeptical about how effective the sessions were going to be and how compatible our business relationship would be. Since working with Joe, I found that we had a lot in common which made our conversation much easier and more productive. We only had a few sessions and I feel more excited than ever to continue. I would highly recommend Joe’s services because he is genuine with his methods. He is authentic with his philosophy to business. He hits you straight in the face with tangible methods to progress to success while being empathetic about one’s challenges. He makes sure that you are on the right path to career success and he works with every aspect of your business and career development. He is a great resource for one’s business and personal development. https://www.linkedin.com/in/derekljames/Derek L. James, MS

"Within just a few sessions, Joe has given me tools and taken me through exercises that have begun to transform the way that I perceive myself and my circumstances. I have already begun to see positive results in my interactions with my boss, my direct reports, and my leadership development. I wish I had begun working with him years earlier, but I am grateful for the opportunity to do so now. I highly recommend his coaching. He can assist with tools to overcome a wide range of issues and challenges. It is a very worthwhile investment in oneself."

Hello Joe! Your energy and influence has been impactful even though we have not spoken for a couple of weeks. Here is my testimonial for you: Recommendation for Joe Cohen In just a few short weeks, Joe Cohen has provided me with exceptional coaching and consulting that has result in some major shifts in my mindset, strategy and execution. The results I have already created as a result of Joe’s candid and compassionate questions and observations is nothing short of remarkable. Whether you think you need accountability or not, I believe that all of us benefit from an advocate like Joe, who cares enough to be direct and honest. Because of my crazy schedule during the holiday season, we have not spoken for a couple of weeks. Yet, Joe’s impact has been so profound that I can hear his voice and feel his supportive presence as I contemplate, plan and take action on my “self-reinvention” for 2018. I believe that, for me, the most beneficial coach and consultant is not one is always correct (in my opinion), but one whom I can trust to reflect back to me what they see and provide their opinion. Joe Cohen is secure and confident in who he is and the value he provides. Joe has consistently risked sharing feedback that would seem to contrast my existing belief system. “Yes-Men/Women” are easy to find. Joe Cohen is a rare treasure who has earned my trust by consistently demonstrating his willingness to care enough to be candid, respectful and be my mirror as I pursue success. https://www.linkedin.com/in/joecohen1/Derek Sleater Cook Life Coach, Consultant, Transformational Speaker
Joe’s teachings have transformed my life forever. He has aided in significantly improving every area of my life - my relationships, my career, my health, my day to day life experience. Best of all, it's been a steady climb and anything but happenstance. I'm creating a much better life experience because he's provided me with an arsenal of tools to build whatever I want. At first I was a little taken back on how candid he is, but I got use to it after our second session and saw the value. Joe shares his remarkable insights with patience and a genuine desire to improve the lives of others. I couldn't imagine a more effective life and career coach and I wholeheartedly recommend his services to everyone.Michael Morris, Miami Florida
Joe is very insightful and thoughtful. His suggestions and ideas are creative and easy to implement and add strong value to the projects at hand.

Joe is one of those people where every time you speak with him, you learn something about yourself both personally and professionally.

Plain and simple, Joe will not waste your time and will make you money. From Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/james-medows-7b10b23James Meadows, Criminal Attorney, Long Island NY
Joe is an innovative thinker when it comes to marketing, especially Internet marketing. I have been consulting with Joe to raise awareness of my book, Being the Strong Man A Woman Wants: Timeless wisdom on being a man and he has provided excellent ideas that I would not have thought of on my own. He has his finger on all the newest ways to use the Internet to reach people with your message. His passion and enthusiasm for my goal -- to change the men of the world -- has led to dynamic and effective marketing ideas. I highly recommend him.

Before I started coaching with Joe, I was struggling to improve my emotional intelligence and business network. Joe helped me identify action steps to move forward. I used self-improvement material for years, but having Joe as my business coach has transformed my efforts from reading 2D words on a page into a 3D view of myself that accelerates my learning. Joe is trained as a coach, marketing consultant, spiritual counselor and lawyer. At first, I was skeptical because it was not obvious how Joe’s experience connects. But it turned out to be a huge asset. His experiences are a unique framework. From that framework, he has provided valuable insights and action steps that my other advisors have missed. Most of all, he gives a damn! ? To get the value that Joe provides, you would need to hire a team of advisors. I am sticking with Joe. Addendum: I am redoing my map of reality. Shifting lenses and perspective with my coach.
